CHICAGO, IL – (FEBRUARY, 2012), Modern Vintage Chicago’s Spring Fashion and Jewels Explosion is hailed at “A Fashionista’s Paradise,” yet provides the accessibility that attracts EVERYONE with treasures that appeal to the masses. Offering the best selection of clothing, accessories, and jewelry from the Mid-Century, Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Victorian, and 60’s and 70’s eras, Modern Vintage Chicago is recognized as one of the top three vintage shows in the country and this bi-annual event comes just in time to cure the winter blues and inspire a new season with vintage creations that never go out of style.

Presented by the producers of the Randolph Street Market, Modern Vintage Chicago returns for its third season, on April 21-22, 2012 to the West Loop’s Plumbers Hall, 1340 W. Washington. The show draws vintage clothing, jewelry and accessory vendors from across the Midwest as well as Atlanta, NYC, Texas, Minneapolis and Philadelphia. Local vintage darlings Brett Benson, Go Fish Vintage, David B, Jenstyle, Lulu’s and Mr. Modern and more represent Chicago and there is quite literally something for everyone!

“You can find amazing, beautifully preserved fashion finds in all price points from highly coveted labels such as Hermes, Fendi, Gucci & Chanel to fun brands like London Fog & Lacoste. Grab outfits for fancy dress like prom, formals and even your own wedding alongside cruisewear, stone wash denims, raincoats and sun hats. Or wear your own jeans or all-black attire and come shopping just for jewelry, the selection of costume and fine estate jewelry will blow your mind, and designer day and evening handbags. It’s a fashionista’s vintage wonderland!”

The variety and the ‘you never know what you can find’ approach is what make this experience more than just about the shopping. It’s a creative outlet that inspires.
